Knowing Pain

A small child runs up the field
He runs till his body tells him to stop
The child thinks of nothing
He carries no problems after all
He stares at the sun, till his eyes start to burn
knowing nothing of pain, the child slowly falls on his back
Knowing nothing of pain, the child begins to laugh as tears seep through his burning eyes
Knowing nothing of pain, the child begins to roll, as rocks begin to stab his back
Knowing nothing of pain, the child continues to roll,
awaiting a brand new world.
